Host Elle Russ sits down with longtime friend and Paleo Thyroid Solution Cara Haun. Cara was mistreated with Synthroid (T4-only/Levothyroxine) for hypothyroidism by an uninformed endocrinologist for eight years, and during that time suffered from miscarriages, asthma, a variety of food and other rare allergies—along with weight gain, depression, and severe exhaustion. Finally, another doctor (a D.O.) tested her thyroid properly and took an in-depth vitamin/mineral/antioxidant blood test. The results were shocking. The D.O. discovered Cara not only had Hashimoto's disease but that due to her endocrinologists's failure to diagnose her properly—combined with medical mistreatment over eight years, Cara had developed the immune profile of someone who had just gone through chemotherapy!
Cara immediately ditched her endocrinologist in favor of a new doctor who started her on a compounded T4/T3 hormone combination, along with supplements, to support her drastically low mineral and nutrient levels. Cara's health was finally restored, hypothyroid symptoms vanished, her allergies and asthma disappeared, and she has been thriving ever since.
However, despite losing the hypo weight and remaining slim and trim—Cara was still a chronic cardio, grain-eating sugar-burner. Two years ago, she went primal and the experience has changed her life in profound ways. Aside from the benefits and joys being a fat-burner, Cara has experienced even more improvements in her health and life...most significantly, a drastic reduction of her Hashimoto's antibodies due to the elimination of grains.
